Vasumathy Rangarajan of Abiramapuram started a small service in her own way after her visit a local GCC clinic – she prepared snacks and sent it to the nurses and staff at the clinic who were working hours at a stretch and didn’t have time to carry lunch.
Her act was acknowledged by her family who joined her in this effort. The news spread and a few more groups began to do the same in their areas.
Now, the support has expanded. Some 12 GCC clinics are now being supported with food for the staff.
Says Vasumathy, “With our first set of sponsors, we are providing , on a daily basis, about 40 breakfasts , about 275 lunch boxes and about 75 snacks to 12 centres for the past one month.”
She says the groups need more sponsors so that the scheme can continue for a few more months.
